Hey now !! Thanx for the Skull and Roses link, I've been to lazy to ask about it (kinda shows my newbie status also), IT IS FOR SURE IS ONE OF MY ALL TIME NA>GTRFB ! That 81 link will be fun to check out if and/or when I peel myself away from these 68-75 shows.

speaking of Not fading away, I heard a professor speak from the University of Louisiana and he had a very valid question. Where are the skimmers to at least get the surface oil cleaned up? He was 10 miles from the well site and there wasn't a skimmer to be seen ANYWHERE !!

Sorry if I"m hijacking here, it's just that it was brought to my attention, so I'm passing on my frustration. Thanks again for the links.

Just repeating the S&R link from "high flow".

Yeah, oil spills (any pollution really) pretty much prove the need for government and regulation. Unfortunately, gov't has been captured by the wealthy who rig the system for themselves and for buyoffs of certain groups.

The refusal of the USA to submit to reality just means that the rest of the decline of the empire with be painful but quick. Some say world fisheries may collapse by 2050. God knows how nature will change; it's too bad the hippies weren't able to effect change and stop the rise of the right wing, who blocked ideas of decentralized power and encouraged corruption.

The kids have big problems in store and little awareness as far I can tell. But the pressure will get worse, and may be they'll avoid the mistakes of the last 30-40 years -- and not fall prey to whispers of fear and desire.

So much for the "new American century"! That's a phrase that everyone should understand.
